Achievement reported for commitment "Initiatives to address the MHM needs of women and adolescent"

Under SBSV, guidelines are issued for schools to address the sanitation needs of children. Eight percent of the total budget reserved for IEC involving area or community specific activities with flexibility to states in using the fund. Also provisions made for special category states. Funds available for IEC may be used to raise awareness specifically amongst adolescent girls in schools, disseminate information and skills on Menstrual Hygiene Management. There are several examples where CSOs and SHGs have worked with the community, informed them about menstrual hygiene practices and also developed economic models to meet the demand for sanitary napkins. As per India’s draft country paper, some states are providing sanitary vending machines and women’s SHGs have been involved in setting up and managing sanitary napkin production centers in states like Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh and Haryana. To address the sanitation needs of poor, provision of subsidies to BPL and APL HHs, female headed HHs for construction of IHHL in rural areas along with the fact that around 20 percent of the funds allocated for the sanitation sector should be earmarked for the urban poor while framing state sanitation strategies as per NUSP. However despite provisions for the poor, the implementation seems quite weak. To meet sanitation needs of disabled people, handbook on different technological options for disabled people along with MHM guidelines are anticipated to be released by mid-December. SBM guidelines include higher subsidy provisions IHHL toilets for people who are more vulnerable such as SC/STs, women headed households, landless labors, and marginal farmers. *No plans/guidelines to address the needs of infants
